African and European traveltech startups merge to become frontier markets leader
Senegalese Teranga Solutions has merged with HotelOnline to create a traveltech industry leader in the global frontier markets. The companies individually had systems and business models that were complimentary and together they now have a cloud-based ecosystem platform for independent hotels – the first of its kind, making HotelOnline a global leader in frontier markets.
Moustapha Ndoye and his brother Alioune Ndoye returned to their native Dakar, Senegal right after college in the US to launch Teranga Solutions. They quickly became a market leader, recognized in 2013 by Demo Africa as one of the most innovative startups on the continent. In early 2018 Destination Senegal the national tourism agency of Senegal contracted them to rollout their system in 800 plus hotels in Senegal – a model they are replicating across the continent.
